Dear Friends,
I would like to share my insights to inspire the Fellows of Nirav Modi Foundation to aspire for higher goals in life. I owe my success in life to a lot of people. To begin the list, I would like to thank my divine God “Jesus” who led me safely and effectively through all the challenges of my life without ever letting me down. Secondly, I owe my success to my hard working mother who was always supportive in all the decisions of my life. I believe that if a person has dreams to achieve his/her goal then sky is the limit. Your dreams come true only if you are passionate about it. At every stage of my life, God placed amazing people in my life that motivated me and guided me to arrive at all the way to where I am now. Some of them are my school teacher Pramila Teacher, Bajaj sir of Brilliance classes, Prabhu Sir and finally Nirav Modi Foundation for supporting me financially for two years of my engineering.

During the course of my life, there were a lot of struggles and hurdles. God helped me to overcome them and also bestowed on me his favor so that I was able to excel in all the situations as well as in my academics. I secured 87.69% in my SSC exam in the year 2007. In my school days, I relied upon the teachers’ guidance. I always strongly believed that the text books are the best guides to prevent myself from joining any coaching class which were too expensive. For my HSC, I joined S.I.E.S college of Science and achieved a score of 93.33%. I used to dedicate daily around 3 hours for self study apart from classes and college. Physics and Math were my favorite subjects. On completion of my HSC exam, I gave the CET exam. I always wanted to pursue Computer Science. I managed to score sufficiently and secured a seat in the prestigious college “V.J.T.I”.

The first year of my engineering was not so good. I did not score well in my first semester. Then I slowly began to understand the importance of time management and methods of effective studying. Upon realization I put sincere efforts in the application of it and I was able to excel my performance. I managed to score a 9.2 (aggregate) out of 10 on the completion of my engineering degree.

All these years have resulted in developing me as a person as well as a professional. I am currently placed in Godrej & Boyce Mfg. Co. Ltd. I will be joining the company in the month of July where I plan to gain loads of experience and then I plan to do my masters in the US or maybe MBA from IIMs whichever I feel would benefit my career ahead. I have an ambition to own a company and also support those kids who do not have sufficient funds to study and become something in life. I am deeply motivated by the activities carried out by the Nirav Modi Foundation and would like to start a similar foundation to help the needy and deserving students of India once I am able to stand up on my own feet.

My sincere message to all the students of Nirav Modi Foundation is that –
? Always study hard and live up-to the full potential within you.
? Succeed in future and make the foundation proud.
? Never compromise on studies, whatever may be the distractions.
? Study first, make your parents proud, make the society happy, and contribute to the society in whatever way you can.
? Last but not the least, NEVER GIVE UP!!!

Dear Students,
It doesn’t matter from where you come from; Education gets you in plain level field. I myself come from a middle class family with a poor financial condition. What I had and have is the passion to learn new things .So right through from school to graduation till now I am among the top three in my the class. Neither your family background nor your financial condition matter if you have the desire to work hard you will achieve your ambition or goals in your life. You should have the determination to excel and should not quit to problem and continue your efforts in reaching your aim.

I during this course from School from school days to gradation (B.Tech, Electronics) had to face a lot of financial problems. Even then I continued working hard and by Gods grace my fees were supported by my Parish and Nirav Modi Foundation. I am grateful to them for supporting me and helping me in providing the financial assistance to purse my passion.

I completed my B.Tech with a CPI of 9.4 and was placed in Credit Suisse with a package of 10lpa.So hard work is the key to success and keep working hard and in the end you will taste the sweet fruit of success.
